The Beauty Rundown | June 2017

Today is marks Canada's 150th birthday and it also means that we are halfway through the year. Time passes by so fast, it's crazy! It's time for another beauty rundown. This month, I've been trying out three products from Shiseido that were sent to me via Influenster. These are the first products I've tested for the brand and so I had no idea what to expect. Let's get into my reviews!

Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Wet Force* | The last time I tried a BB cream, I absolutely hated it (the Garnier one if you're curious) so I wasn't expecting to like this one at all. However my mind was changed immediately after the first day I used it. The formula is very runny and it's easy to blend it into the skin. With one application, I get a good light coverage but since it is so thin, I think it'd be one of those foundations that won't cake up after the second or even third layer. What I do notice about it though is that it does oxidize a tiny bit, so I don't think I'll be able to use this during the Winter when my skin is really light. What I've been doing to fix that is using a lighter-toned concealer in the centre of my face so that it doesn't look a solid colour on my face. Overall, I really like this one and have been wearing it to work often. It's lasted me more than an 8 hour shift, so that should say something about this guy!

Shiseido Ultimate Cleansing Oil* | I thought it was really cool that this was included in the Influenster Voxbox. I love cleansers and I'm always down to try some new ones. I found this one to be pretty effective in removing my makeup, however it's not as good as my go-to - the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm. This one came in a deluxe sample size, so I'll definitely be popping this into my travel makeup bag to use when I'm away from home. 

Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream* | I'm so glad this came in the box as well because I've been in the market for a new sun cream. I lost my Neutrogena one and with the sun beaming down on us lately, I was glad to have found this one. One thing I really like about this sunscreen is that it doesn't have that bleh scent that typical sunscreens smell like; it actually has a quite pleasant smell. The cream is also quite thick, but is easy to rub into the skin. It sits well under makeup and doesn't alter the application of foundation at all.
